Rotisserie Chicken in NYC

I'm searching specifically for good rotisserie chicken in Manhattan - not grilled, not BBQ, not fried - just plain, simple, tasty rotisserie chicken. Preferably with a good side of fries. Any suggestions?

  1. Try L'Express on Park Ave South.

    1. The Peruvian restaurant Pardo's on 7th Ave. South makes a very good rotisserie chicken.

        Pardo's has gone down big time! It used to be a good bird, now whatever they're buying is kind of rubbery and weird textured.

      2. Doesn't get any better than Pio Pio with a side of yuca frita!

        Several locations.

            Thirded. Pio Pio hands down. I haven't even heard of Pardo's or El Malecon but I'll bet anyone $1000 that Pio Pio is better. It's that good.

              Agreed. Although I've only been to the UWS branch, which is said to be not as good as the other branches, still the chicken really stood out. And cheap!

            2. el malecon (wahi, uws, bronx) is always solid - makes my mouth water thinking about it . .

              1. pio pio for sure.

                picnic - 102rd and broadway or so makes a great one.

                i know some people aren't fans, but i still like citarella's.
